What is difference between myopia hyperopia presbyopia and astigmatism?
Myopia: nearsightedness or rather distant objects appear blurry resulting from an eyeball that is too long Hyperopia: farsightedness or rather near objects appear blurry while distant objects are clear, resulting from an eyeball that is too short aka "lazy lens" Astigmatism: images are blurry, resulting from the eyes focusing on lines not points, also due to unequal curvatures of the cornea or lens Presbyopia: a decrease in near vision Source Introduction to the Human Body by Gerard Tortora and Bryan Derrickson ...
How can convex lens correct farsightedness?
A farsighted person can see distant objects clearly, but nearby objects appear blurry. The eyeball is too short, so the image that falls on the retina is out of focus. A convex lens corrects this by bending light rays toward each other before they enter the eye. An image then focuses on the retina. ...

What does the word nearsighted mean?
Being diagnosed as being nearsighted means just exactly what it says. You can only focus on things close to you. Distant objects are out of focus. Being farsighted means just exactly the opposite of being nearsighted. Distant objects are in focus, but nearby things appear blurry. ...

What is the medical term meaning nearsightedness?
Nearsightedness, or myopia, is an eye problem that causes objects at a distance to be blurry. A nearsighted person can clearly see objects that are close to them, but has a hard time focusing on objects that are far away. The condition arises when light from distant objects fall in front of the retina or the eyes, instead of on it. This leads to the vision of distant objects being blurred. There is no problem, however, in seeing near objects. A nearsighted...

Asked in Eyes
Why does astigmatism cause objects to appear blurry?
An astigmatism means that the shape of the optics cause the focus to be a line rather than a point (the lenses are not spherical). Thus the image produced by these lenses is imperfect, causing a blurred image/vision. ...
How to fix blurry pictures taken from my Samsung galaxy s3?
Pictures on your Samsung Galaxy s3 appear to be blurry due them being compressed by your telecom provider being sent to your phone but if you turn on your WIFI the pictures will be sent directly to your phone and therefore most likely not blurry. ...
Asked in Health, Eyes, The Difference Between
What is the difference between myopia farsightness and nearsightness?
Myopia is when nearby objects are clear but far away objects appear to be blurry to the person. It is caused by either the eyeball has grown too long or the cornea is too steep. Hyperopia is caused by an imperfection in the eye, usually if the eye lens is not round enough or if the eyeball is too short. Close up objects are blurred and far away object are clear. ...

What happens to the depth of field as your move from low power to high power?
Depth of field decreases from low to high. This means what you see under the microscope is blurry. If both objects are not blurry, this means you have high depth-of-field. ...

Asked in Physics
Why is it blurry when you open your eyes underwater?
It's all to do with how light works. When we are on land, light will be travelling in a straight line, and the light photons will beam straight into our eye. We can focus this light and see properly. However, if beams of light will hit another object (discluding gases, or everything would be blurry) it will be refracted (or bent, but scientists say refract because it sounds more scientific). So, when we are in water, the beams of light will refract...
